=====


  • Dish name: Avocado Mint Gazpacho

  • Cuisine: Fusion/International

  • Preparation time: 20 minutes (plus chilling time)

  • Yield: 4 servings

  • Expiration: Consume within 1 day for best quality


Ingredients:


  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted

  • 1 cucumber, peeled and seeded

  • 1 small jalapeño, seeded and chopped (optional)

  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves

  • 2 cups vegetable broth, chilled

  • Juice of 2 limes

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 tablespoon honey or agave syrup (optional)

  • For garnish: diced cucumber, mint leaves, and a drizzle of olive oil


Instructions:


  1. In a blender, combine avocados, cucumber, jalapeño (if using), and mint leaves.

  2. Add the chilled vegetable broth and lime juice to the blender and blend until smooth.

  3. With the blender running, slowly drizzle in the olive oil to emulsify.

  4. Season with salt and pepper. Add honey or agave syrup if you prefer a slightly sweeter taste.

  5. Blend again to ensure all ingredients are well incorporated.

  6. Refrigerate the Gazpacho for at least 2 hours or overnight to chill thoroughly and allow flavors to meld.

  7. Serve chilled, garnished with diced cucumber, fresh mint leaves, and a drizzle of olive oil.


Tips and Tricks:


  • Choosing Avocados: Make sure the avocados are ripe for the best flavor and creaminess.

  • Texture: If you prefer a thinner Gazpacho, add a bit more broth or water.

  • Spice Level: Adjust the amount of jalapeño to your taste for heat or omit it if preferred.

  • Herbs: Fresh mint is key to the flavor profile, but you can also try basil or cilantro for a different twist.

  • Balance: The lime juice provides acidity, balanced by the sweetness of the honey or agave. Adjust these to taste.

  • Chilling: Serve the soup as cold as possible; you can even chill the bowls before serving.

  • Garnishes: Play with different garnishes like chopped tomatoes or toasted seeds for added texture and color contrast.

  • Blending: Blend well to ensure a smooth texture, but don't over-blend, or the soup can become too warm.





Avocado Mint Gazpacho is a versatile dish that's both healthful and indulgent. Enjoy it on its own or as a prelude to a summer meal, and delight in the refreshing flavors that make it a unique and enjoyable experience.
